Three Candidates

From an article about how Clarke’s been working on paid maternity leave for state employees in the Arkansas State House

My friend Clarke Tucker is running for Congress as a Democrat in Arkansas’ 2nd district.  He’s just the kind of guy you want doing legislative work.  A solid citizen.

In his gentle and careful yet warm manner Clarke reminds me of another Southern state legislator:

John Grisham.

Meanwhile, out in the desert and the Eastern Sierra, they’re trying to put Marge in charge.

Marge Doyle that is.  I saw her speak on Sunday and was really impressed.  Her passion to run stems from her frustration with current Congressman Paul Cook and his Republican party-line votes that would’ve hurt the health care people in the district depend on.

Had the chance to hear Marge give her message and came away real impressed.  She came to her campaign through hard, slow work on health care issues in the district, and spoke of her belief in her ability to find solutions through common values.

Happened to meet Katie Hill when she turned up at a meeting of the SELAH (Silver Lake, Echo Park, Los Feliz, Atwater, Hollywood) Homeless Coalition.

She grew up in California’s 25th district, and seemed like just the person to knock off the distasteful Steve Knight and represent the people of Lancaster, Palmdale, Pearblossom, Acton, Santa Clarita, and the rest.

Clarke.

Marge.

Katie.

 

(oh and none of them are paying me or nothing.  This is just my own Take!)
